Dr. Brian Divelbiss, MD

I joined Dickson-Diveley Orthopaedics in 2001 and have served as President and CEO of the group since 2012. I enjoy being a hand and upper extremity surgeon because of the significant impact I can have on a patient's quality of life. It's very satisfying to see a fracture or tendon injury that you can repair and return the patient back to his or her previous level of function. It's about problem solving. I take a look at the problem, we work through the diagnosis and discuss all their options, and we collectively make the decision together as far as what's going to be best for them. I see my role, first and foremost, as an educator.

    Dr Divelbiss is caring, very knowledgeable and professional. I recommend him to everyone I talk to about orthopedic care, already. He is an excellent physician.
    in Raytown, MO |
    The doctors at k.c. orthopedics have served my family for more than 12yrs. It would be unthinkable for me to take them away from such caring and devoted doctors and nurse's. Maybe I should say, "real friends and real people just like you and me". They give all to each they treat, with honest and real concern for each individual regardless of color, nationality, ethnic group and religion. KC Orthopedics is everyone's place for excellent care.
